Memorize Periodic Table: So Much More than a Party Trick
Do you remember having to memorize stuff for school? Presidents State capitals Planets Vocab words Dates I hated memorizing lists of things. Did you? How did you do it? Did you... Recite the list over and over? Make flash cards? Try to find a helpful acronym? Or, did you get creative and make up a song? And... can you remember any of those things now? Did any of those tricks work for the long term? I can remember one moment where memorization was long-lasting. My 6th-grade teacher was Mr. Walsh. Enthusiastic and goofy, Mr. Walsh made us laugh day in and day out. He also loved prepositions.
